PSFK’s a fan of artist Jenny Holzer, who over the years has used everything from silkscreen to twitter as her medium. In one of her most popular works, Truisms, Holzer curated a series of half statements and aphorisms which she then published on street posters, telephone booths, and even a larger than life LED billboard in Times Square. LEDs, which have evolved to become major components to Holzer’s work, have a starring place in her newest exhibit at the Whitney Museum in New York entitled PROTECT PROTECT. The exhibit is a series of LED signs intricately bent and welded to create the illusion of floors, ceilings, and even an entire hallway made entirely of flashing, blinking words.
